Prospect Heights is a tiny, beautiful Brooklyn neighborhood in the northwest part of the borough. Its boundaries are Flatbush Avenue to the west, Atlantic Avenue to the north, Eastern Parkway to the south, and Washington Avenue to the east. The streets are tree-lined and brownstone-full, making the short walk to nearby Prospect Park a study in New York’s architectural history. Grand Army Plaza features some of the largest, grandest buildings in Brooklyn: the Brooklyn Public Library, Soldiers and Sailors Arch, Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Some new developments have appeared in the neighborhood too, such as famous architect Robert Meier’s 1 Grand Army Plaza, which was built in 2009. A stable nabe for decades, Prospect Heights still remains a safe bet for families and young professionals alike. Great bars and restaurants are opening every month, such as Citrico, for fine Mexican fare, and Cooklyn, for an upscale spin on Greek cuisine. The neighborhood hasn’t been over-developed however, and longtime residents can still enjoy classic standbys like Tom’s Diner, which has been serving typical American diner food since 1936. The easy commute to Manhattan makes this Brooklyn nabe an excellent choice for those who travel to the city each day. Transportation options are many, as the Atlantic Avenue terminal is located at the northern tip of the ‘hood. Drivers will appreciate the easy access to Flatbush Ave, which leads straight to both the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. By Merritt Duncan

    Prospect Park is my favorite place in NYC to just sit in the grass. Not bad inside either with the Botanic Gardens and Brooklyn Museum. Lots of places nearby to find a place to get some food to bring into the park.
